We recently chanced upon an exhilarating lodge by the outskirts of South Africa and are completely swooned over the aesthetically pleasing safari wonderland. Situated in the heart of South Africa’s ‘big cat country’, the Singita Ebony Lodge is a fresh and contemporary interpretation of the classic safari lodge, combining a tented camp and bush lodge style.
The lodge comprises of 12 suites, each with its own private plunge pool and large open spaces and interiors inspired by a mishmash of local tribal culture and the animal kingdom. The jungle-themed room is sprawling with delightful safari décor such as old brass decorative items, traditional khaki and beige tent canvases, hand-woven baskets and exposed thatches.
Though sadly for some of us, vacationing in South Africa isn’t something on the cards for now – but that shouldn’t stop us from going into the wild. Get your Tarzan – or Jane Porter on with a bit of jungle love. We’ve selected tawny neutral furnishings, bamboo inspired wooden furniture, and jungle motifs like wall hangings and hurricanes. These pieces will definitely have your friends and family feeling like they’ve entered their personal jungle.
